This doesn't work because Gnus uses invalid characters in node
names.  See (info "(texinfo) Node Line Requirements") that says:
"you cannot use periods, commas, colons or parentheses within
a node name".  But there are periods in node names like "[1.1]".

What is interesting that references to "[1.1]" work when they
refer to the same file.  But TOC references contain absolute
file names because the TOC is a virtual Info *file*.  Perhaps
changing the TOC to be a virtual Info *node* with local
references to the same Info file will fix this.
